Back From Vacation

My visit with family was, overall, too short.  As usual, it included some unwanted drama, a fair amount of running around,
and one missed flight due to a failed rechargeable battery on the plane.  Besides seeing some of my children and playing with my beautiful granddaughter one of the joys of the trip was having feline friends along every step of the way.  The top photo is of my daughter's gigantic ball of laid back cattitude, Brutus, who must weigh in at around 40 pounds.  Though this picture doesn't really show it Brutus is one massive mancat.
     The sleek beauties in the bottom photo are sisters, who belong to my son.  Sadie, the short-haired one one the right, is one of the most loving, cuddly girls you'll ever find.
     The night I stayed there she slept with me, and woke me up almost every hour, it seemed, crawling over my head, laying across my neck, and gently nudging my face and hands with her nose, seeking attention.
      Although I failed to get any pictures I also spent one night with one of my brothers, who is the proud servant of a gorgeous charcoal-hued princess.
    As if I needed any prodding, being around these critters has made me want to find another  furry friend more than ever.

How wonderful to have a vacation with family...and cats! We all wait, wondering when you will take the plunge, but understand any concerns in bringing a new family member into your home. But we also know things will work out, today or tomorrow, sooner or later. I say 'we', not like the royal WE but your internet readers.

You definitely needed the family visit, and the cat fix. Maybe 2 cats/kittens - so they can keep each other company?
